New to ROS, and trying to move to it (from player). I'm on gentoo.

I'm following the page on installing Jade and am hitting a first issue. media-libs/collada-dom does not exist. Instead there is a dev-libs/collada-dom, which I presume is the same. This is easy enough to fix by copying and editing the emerge command (not sure where this should be fixed properly).

However, I then hit a block of pkgconf by pkgconfig. Can I use pkgconfig instead?

Edit: Some more info on that.

I am now trying Kinetic, and the same happens. On the pkgconfig/pkgconf front, there is a virtual package for that (virtual/pkgconfig), and maybe this is what "rosdep install" should require.
